Beautiful food, lovely classic atmosphere, I have been to this restaurant quite a few times now, previously with a large group, also I have visited just as couple, I have to say all the times the staff have been great all the times. The menu is quite small but caters for most people, and it does change quite frequently to... More

Being a local I can't believe i've never found Gimbals up until now...well i'll definitely be going back. Excellent choice of food to suit most palates and all reasonably priced. The staff were very efficient, pleasant & friendly. This little place would easily "stand it's ground" even in a big city centre it's that good. Thanks for a great evening........

My husband and I dined at Gimbals on the recommendation of our daughter. There were different combinations of flavours and it was lovely to experience the ambience of a small private restaurant after eating out at 'chain' eateries. Staff were efficient and friendly, and the portions were generous. Small and intimate dining experience.

Visited Gimbals on Tuesday evening with 3 friends to celebrate me and my best friend's significant birthday. Have visited numerous times before and although the restaurant is only small, I find the food and service to be always excellent as well as the restaurant having a good value midweek menu which changes often. The surroundings of the restaurant are welcoming... More

What a lovely friendly restaurant with beautiful presented tasty food and great cocktails. Love the decor and feel of Gimbals. Found it hard to choose what to try as everything sounded scrummy and the tasting menu looked great too. Will definitely have to come back to sample more of your great food. A nice treat for my mums birthday. Thank... More

I love Gimbals! It's totally random the food is excellent and exciting. The drinks are fun and funky! From the giant seashell in the ladies to the beetle spiral or the candles on the stairway. It's like having dinner down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland! Wonderful!

Need to book! Arrived to a lovely warm welcome and asked which cocktail we wanted (uncluded in the price). We then were presented with a menu to show us tonight's dishes. Some of the dishes had cheese or chocolate and so I explained that i couldn't eat cheese and chocolate (migraine sufferer) and were there any other options. They were... More

I have frequented Gimbals several times over the last 12 months and have always enjoyed it. I took some friends for their first time last week, and we went to the taster evening, well I was not to be disappointed, it was a great success. The food was exceptional, and the staff was a credit to them. Well done Gimbals... More
